Jim spends several months every year visiting wineries in search of new, interesting and, most importantly, good value wines. Our new partners tend to be smallish enterprises, often family businesses, whose emphasis is on quality rather than quantity and, increasingly, likely to follow a winemaking regime that includes a respect for the land with a minimum of chemical intervention. The wines in this case represent some of Jim's personal favourites which he feels overdeliver on the quality/price scale. Included this year is an exceptionally tasty white from southern Italy, a Sauvignon Blanc from top Californian producer Rochioli and a new, gently-oaked classy Chardonnay from longterm favourites Newtown Johnson. Representing the reds we have a succulent and powerful wine from Ribero del Duero king Alejandro Fernandez, a spicy yet smooth organic blend from the south of France, and a new addition to the range from biodynamic South African Johan Reyneke.
